ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
James Han Mattson was born in Seoul, Korea and raised in North Dakota. A Michener-Copernicus Fellowship recipient and graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, he has taught at the University of Iowa, the University of Cape Town, the University of Maryland, the George Washington University, and the University of California – Berkeley. His first novel The Lost Prayers of Ricky Graves was an Amazon Literature and Fiction Pick, an Amazon Best Book of the Month, a Publishers Lunch Bookseller Pick, a Kindle First Pick, a New York Post Required Reading, and was featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition with Scott Simon. He currently lives in Maryland.
Andrew Demcak is an American poet and novelist, the author of four poetry collections and five young adult novels. His books have been featured by the American Library Association, Verse Daily, Lambda Literary Foundation, The Best American Poetry, and Poets & Writers. His new book Lazarus was a finalist for the prestigious 2018 Dorset Prize for Poetry.
Tim Floreen writes young adult science fiction. The New York Public Library named his first novel, Willful Machines, one of the best teen books of 2015 and, in a starred review, Kirkus described it as “gothic, gadgety, and gay,” which is an accurate assessment. Booklist called his second novel, Anatomy of a Murderer, “incisive, startling, and intense.” Tim lives in San Francisco with his partner, their two cat-obsessed daughters, and two very patient cats.
